In an interview with The Defender, Michigan native Teresa Cichewicz detailed how her father, Robert Anthony Michanowicz, went to the hospital because he had COVID-19 and had trouble breathing — and died three days later, after doctors administered remdesivir despite the family’s insistence that he not be given the drug.

Michigan native Teresa Cichewicz fondly recalls her father, Robert Anthony Michanowicz, as “the breath of fresh air that everyone liked to have around” and someone who “brought joy everywhere he went.”

In November 2021, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Cichewicz was looking forward to Thanksgiving dinner with her father and her family. What she didn’t know was that it would be the last holiday she would celebrate with her father.

By Dec. 8, 2021, her father was dead — a victim of COVID-19 hospital protocols, Cichewicz said.
